The Fabulous Sydney Home of A Photographic Interior Stylist

G'day! It's been a while! We were actually meant to be back in Sweden today, but Allie picked up a tummy bug in London a couple of days ago (poor little thing!) - so only half the family made it back! Guh! Has that ever happened to you? Hopefully we can head home this afternoon. ANYHOW, I thought I'd kick off November with a very special tour of the home of Australian interior stylist Kerrie-Ann Jones. Kerrie-Ann began her home decor career working for glossy interior magazines including Real Living. Today she works as a photographic interior stylist and creative director, counting some of Australia's leading furniture, art and homeware brands as her clients. Based on this intro, you can kind of guess that her own home - a Sydney terrace house in Darlinghurst - is pretty fabulous, and you wouldn't be wrong! The earthy, light-filled living space has been artfully curated using a blend of mid-century, contemporary vintage, art and handmade pieces against a cool back drop of polished concrete and white walls. Come and take a peek inside!

A series of skylights flood the open plan kitchen with great shafts of light - one of the reasons Kerrie-Ann fell in love with the house in the first place!

Peel back the layers and you'll find a cool polished concrete floor and whitewashed walls.

I do love a polished concrete floor - but they certainly need a lot of cosying up (especially in Sweden). This large, striped rug in the second living room does the trick, plus it's very pretty too!

I spotted a rattan chair like this one in the corner of Kerrie-Ann's daughter's room in the Swedish shop Granit the other day - isn't it fabulous? I also love the wooden bookshelves in the corner of the room - laying children's books flat against the room makes it so much easier for them to pick out their favourite books (usually the longest ones....!). 

Kerrie-Ann has decorated her own room with layers of texture in earthy hues and a simple rust accent. The guest bedroom is a little more vibrant with salmon pink linen bedding (what a difference a little coloured linen can make - source similar here*!). 

If you're thinking of renovating your bathroom - take heed! It can be pretty expensive to make-over a space like this so, in MHO it's way better to go for something timeless like a grey and white theme and then bring in the latest trends with accessories - just like Kerrie-Ann has done. The same goes for cushions in the sitting room, dishcloths in the kitchen etc. 

Love the bust! 

What did you think? Planning a complete overhaul of your own home? Or maybe just scouring second-hand rug* sites (like I am!)? 

I LOVED the gallery wall in the first picture (in case you missed them, scroll on up and take a look at the items on the rattan side-table too - each piece is like a work of art)! 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

You can see more of Kerrie-Ann's home and latest work on her instagram feed (warning, you could be stuck there for hours). You can also read a full interview with Karrie-Ann on Bed Threads and Domino

Shall we stick to Australia this bright and sunny Monday? I think it feels kind of apt - plus many of the homes I've featured from the land Down Under have been among my favourites! I'm loving this sleek bachelor pad with a rustic touch, a dreamy waterside home (that view!) and a vibrant, mid-century inspired family home (I remember the artwork caused some controversy when I posted this one!). 

Have a fabulous start to the week friends!


PS I'm so excited about tomorrow's post, there are just so many ideas to steal! See you then!

  1. Did she move into the property recently? I actually think I saw this house for sale on Love it or List it Australia (and was admiring it with my husband - it's truly GORGEOUS! Love the way she's decorated too. Stylish but feels homey :)

    1. I'm not sure actually - but it is quite a distinctive home so it must be the same one - what a coincidence!

  2. That tan lamp in the first photo! What is it made of?
